Pacific Arctic Observations Addressing Causes and Consequences of Sea Ice Loss 7 October 2015

Pacific Arctic Observations Addressing Causes and Consequences of Sea Ice Loss

In 2015, NOAA’s Arctic Research Program competitively funded three new five-year projects involving $4.2 million in grants (and benefit from additional support by interagency and international partners). Through these three new projects, university partners will help to carry out multidisciplinary observations and research for five years (from 2015­ to 2020), in support of analysis, and modeling in the Pacific Arctic, i.e., the Chukchi ­Beaufort Sea, the East Siberian Sea, and the Arctic Ocean north of these regions.

Emissions from thawing permafrost add trillions in economic impacts 1 October 2015

Emissions from thawing permafrost add trillions in economic impacts

Work supported by CPO's AC4 program found that the effects of melting permafrost in the Arctic could cost $43 trillion in extra economic damage by the end of the next century, on top of the more than the $300 trillion economic damage already predicted.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
